Tonight (August 26) @ The Cherry Tree

A rather special night at the Cherry Tree Restaurant (9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond, Newcastle NE2 2AE. 0191 2399924) tonight - the Peter Gilligan Trio featuring Alice Grace. Peter Gilligan is well known and justifiably recognised as one of the best jazz pianists around whilst Alice Grace, in a relatively short space of time, has built up a strong fan base that began with an impromptu appearance at a late night jam session at this years GIJF. Since then she has gone from strength to strength. Prior to arriving in the north east her career incorporated a stint with NYJO, the Guildhall School of Music, the house band at Ronnie Scott's and a recent tour of Dubai. This, her first appearance at the Cherry Tree, promises to be a very special night. 
Another relative newcomer to the area is drummer Russ Morgan who, like Ms. Grace, is making waves in all the right places. Add Mister Dependable Paul Grainger on double bass and you have the recipe for a great night. Talking of recipes, the food's fantastic!
My suggestion is to reserve a table now - it's yours for the whole evening. Doors open at 6.30pm and the music starts at 7.00pm. Table d'Hote and A la Carte menus served at usual prices without cover charge.
Lance.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
